Practice workbooks abound for elementary science, but sometimes it's hard to find extra practice at the upper levels. If you're having a hard time filling in your student's gaps in understanding, maybe you should check these out. This series of workbooks provide standards-based practice in three major areas of high school science. Each workbook is divided into topical units, usually about a dozen pages in length. In each unit you'll find basic background information, a list of relevant terms, several pages of text, and workbook activities on the topic covered. For example, in Chemistry, the unit on Acids and Bases begins with an introductory paragraph about common substances that are acids and bases, and a list of related terms that includes "electrolyte," "Brnsted-Lowry base," and "titration" is found to the right. The text for this unit begins on this page and is studded with equations in bold to illustrate the concepts. There are about two full pages of text followed by a multiple-choice review. Six worksheets follow, including identifying the acids and bases in given equations, identifying acid-base pairs in reaction equations, writing formulas for conjugate bases and acids formed by specific acids or bases, completing a pH table, solving molarity and normality problems, solving titration problems, and doing an acid-base word search. Designed as extra practice for a basal science text or for a brief review, you'll find little repetition in these workbooks, just a nice overview of important concepts. Reproducible, glossary and answer key included. 96 pgs, pb. Jess
